Color of Hope Charity Gala 2014

The Color of Hope Charity Gala was finally this past Friday night - August 8th.  I have been on the silent auction committee since May, helping get donations from local businesses. {and my amazing friends  - THANK YOU!!}  All the proceeds from his amazing event benefit the Arkansas Children's Hospital.  
 After setting up all day on Friday, we got all dressed up in our turquoise, got our babysitter, snapped a couple pictures, pre-partied at the neighbors', then went to the event at the John Q. Hammons. 
Loved seeing everyone in their different turquoise dresses!
Merritt, Jordan, Haley & I 
We had seats at the committee table, but ended up sitting at the Blakeman's table in the front, since they had two cancel last minute. 
My handsome husband & David Harris with their matching ties!

Fun dinner, live auction, and silent auction!   Afterwards, we went to Ruth's patio for drinks with friends! 

Behind the scenes...

The Tim McGraw concert was at the AMP that night, so his VIP Lounge was being set up the room next door!
 The ball room before the tables were decorated:

I helped setup from 9-3, then went home to relieve the babysitter.  Then, the girls & I went back up to work for a little while!

We voted on next year's color and it is WHITE!!!
